Real estate firm founder Armando Vela and five of his junior partners are shot in the office. After eliminating the surviving Latino colleagues as suspects, also in tampering with credit files, LAPD hands sole and poorest-performing Afro Al Hayes over to the D.A.'s office. The defense gets crucial evidence eliminated after an edited interview on Internet exposes lieutenant Arleen Gonzalez as an apparent practitioner of racist discrimination on the job. She seems to prefer discharge to a public trial for her pre-teen son's sake. Squeeky-clean Rex Winters helps with both the budding police credibility crisis and alternative evidence.
